Corporate, Europe

At the heart of Europe's financial centre, our London-based European Corporate practice advises on domestic, multi-jurisdictional, and cross-border corporate transactions. Our experience includes a focus on private equity, mergers and acquisitions, and life sciences transactions.

Our principle areas of focus include:

  • Advising corporations on European and cross-border M&A transactions, joint ventures, and reorganizations
  • Advising on both venture capital for growth companies and private equity transactions, representing funds and other investors, and their portfolio companies and management teams
  • Advising on equity issues and on debt issues particularly for sovereigns in the international capital markets
  • Advising on corporate governance procedures and developments

We act for a large number of organisations in highly regulated industries, such as financial services, biotechnology, fast-moving consumer goods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biologicals, healthcare, and medical devices. Our additional sector focus includes retail, for-profit education, and real estate investments.

What sets us apart from other firms is our multidisciplinary approach to handling transactions — the breadth of our regulatory practices complements our transactions experience, providing a strategic advantage to our clients. We also work closely with our tax, employment, intellectual property, competition, and finance experts to provide all-round support.
